Later, OnePlus’s CEO Mr. Pete Lau has also confirmed the news about the chipset. Also, he stated that choosing the components is only the first step and there was another key area that the team behind smartphone wanted to work upon. Anyway, OnePlus is making the best hardware for the upcoming flagship. So it will be another hot selling flagship like the OnePlus 3 series.
“One of the main areas we wanted to improve was touch latency. Our engineers tested why scrolling occasionally differed between phones. There wasn’t a lot of precedents for them to work with – no benchmarks, no industry case studies to learn from. So we used a special high-speed camera to track screen movements and measure input speeds. As a result, apps respond quickly to your touch for a seamless user experience,” Lau said in a blog post on company’s official forum.
